Russia Beyond The Headlines or RBTH is a multilingual news and information resource that offers news, comment, opinion and analysis on culture, politics, business, science, and public life in Russia. It is part of Rossiyskaya Gazeta,[1] which is owned by the government of Russia.[2]

In its print supplements and on its websites RBTH covers current affairs and public phenomena in Russia. RBTH gained the trust of readers of leading newspapers all over the world on 4 continents.


RBTH is a link between Russia and the world.

RBTH collects, selects and publishes in foreign languages topical reports about Russian politics, public life, culture, business, science, history and other areas that are usually not covered by foreign media for their domestic audiences.


Russia Beyond The Headlines is a news and information resource sponsored by the Rossiyskaya Gazeta publishing house.

Rossiyskaya Gazeta is a general-interest daily newspaper, offering its readers a diverse and quality content and receiving income from commercial advertising and sales of the paper.

RBTH has editorial and output teams, separate from Rossiyskaya Gazeta, that prepare material for publication in print supplements to foreign media outlets and on its own websites in different languages.

The RBTH editorial team consists of the Central Desk, which produces material shared across countries and regions, and of regional clusters, where this material is adapted to specific countries, adding themes relevant for a particular region. In addition, each regional division of RBTH publishes material on bilateral relations with Russia.


Russia Beyond the Headlines has been criticised for being a para-governmental Russian propaganda organisation.[3]

Financial operations[edit]

RBTH operations are financed by Rossiyskaya Gazeta as well as from RBTH income from sponsorship and commercial advertising.

Foreign partners taking part in the printing and distribution of RBTH print supplements (sections) receive full or partial compensation of their costs associated with the production of the Russian supplements (paper, printing, distribution) as well as for providing RBTH with additional services in promoting the supplements and in studying readers' feedback.


RBTH provides its content for reuse and integration in its media partners, both print and digital. It supplies not only articles on different topics, but also multimedia materials, all the content can be adjusted to any platform.
